What a stay... We loved our super comfy beds, we loved the spacious rooms for a family of 5 - great cooking facilities for us too meant that we could make our own breakfast and dinner at home to save some money. We especially loved our thermal spa - with the kids even loving that they can swim in the pool in April still. Staff are also very friendly and welcoming. Wish we stayed a week here...
